    LAS VEGAS -- Booker Woodfox scored 26 points to lead Creighton over DePaul 83-75 in the championship game of the Las Vegas Classic on Tuesday night.

    Woodfox, who was selected the tournament MVP, went 5-of-9 from 3-point range for the Bluejays (10-2), who have won seven straight.

    Sophomore forward Dar Tucker led DePaul (7-5) with a career-high 32 points. Tucker was 12-of-22 from the field and grabbed six rebounds. Sophomore center Mac Koshwal had 13 points and a career-high 22 rebounds for the Blue Demons.

    After the Bluejays led 62-48 with 11:21 left, the Blue Demons cut the lead to 75-73 with 2:20 remaining. But Woodfox's basket with 1:01 to go and his two free throws with 29 seconds remaining gave Creighton a six-point lead.

    Creighton was 18-of-19 from the free throw line, while DePaul was 13-of-24.

    DePaul outrebounded Creighton 42-28 but had 18 turnovers.
